Steam cleaners use high water pressure in combination with high-temperature, to loosen dirt and scum. The water particles hit the surface you are cleaning, loosening and lifting away dirt with almost no effort, and the temperature of the water sterilizes the area you are cleaning. Steam cleaning moldy bathroom grout is often effective, and saves you a lot of effort.
There are a number of different sizes of steam cleaners available. For cleaning grout in bathrooms, a small to moderately sized machine should do the trick.
